The functions of the liver include aiding the digestive system by assisting in metabolism and storing vitamins and minerals.. Because one the liver’s function is to detoxify the body, detoxifying the liver can be a dangerous process. The safest way to detoxify your liver is to change your diet to include only vegetable smoothies for a period of time, or to try a liver cleanse.
Things You'll Need
- Kidney cleansing system
- Colon cleansing system
- Pure fruit juices
- Raw fruits and vegetables
- Virgin olive oil
- Epsom salts
- Vitamin C pill or capsule
- Dandelion supplement
- Licorice root supplement
- Milk thistle supplement
- Turmeric supplement
Cleanse the kidneys and colon first. Because you will be removing toxins from your liver, you will need your kidneys and colon to be able to immediately eliminate these toxins. If toxins are being flushed out of the liver and cannot get through the kidneys and colon because the kidneys and colon are already ridden with toxins, health problems may arise.
Fast for two or three days, consuming only water and pure fruit juices; if you are unable to fast for this long, eat only enough raw fruits and vegetables to keep you from feeling like you are starving. Plan to be home for several days to commit to your cleansing process.
Mix together the fresh squeezed juice from both a lemon and a grapefruit, four tablespoons of Epsom salts, one vitamin C tablet or pill opened or crushed, and half a teaspoon of the olive oil.
Drink down the mixture after rising, and eat only fruits and vegetables for the first six hours you are awake. After the sixth hour, do not eat anymore that day.
Drink down a second mixture four hours after you last ate, having nothing to eat for two more hours, and then drink down a last mixture of the ingredients before heading to bed.
Lie on your right side during the night for at least an hour, but try to remain on your side while you sleep; this step is intended so that your liver will better absorb the mixture you drank down.
Eat as normal upon waking the following morning. Continue to drink lots of water for the following few days so that you will flush the mixture from your system.
Tips & Warnings
- Expect a few side effects. You will experience loose stools upon drinking the mixture, and may potentially pass gallstones. You may feel more tired for a couple of days after drinking the mixture, experience nausea, headaches, confusion, and flu symptoms. If your symptoms last for a full week, consult a doctor.
- Consult a doctor before attempting any detoxification procedures, even if the procedures are based on the use of natural products.
